MKE- Need newest of the new. Yes I have searched.

Coming unexpectedly for a visit the 6-11 Feb 2013. Sis and BIL have lived there for over 30 years and I make my annual 6-8 week visit every fall. Searching Chowhound has afforded us great dining. Anything Bartolotta is probably out as BIL is a vendor for them. So would like to treat them $50 each plus wine. We have loved the gamut of McBob's to Crazy Water. Hopefully something that is newly exciting.

    Best new Milwaukee-area restaurants for 2012 -

    1. We went to Rodizio recently with two other couples. It opened at the end of last year on Water Street. Each of us liked it. It is very similar to Sabor that was in that same location but Rodizio has lower prices.

      I will post a full review when I have a chance.

      1. There's a new restaurant in the old Nanakusa space -- Kanpai Izakaya.

        Odd Duck is pretty good small plates for Milwaukee though it's very loud.

        1. If you havent tried Meritage yet, they have never let me down, and will come in well under your $50 + wine goal.

          1. The stalwarts have responded!!! and I am so thankfull. Am looking forward to any other recommendations. I apologise if anybody mistook McBob"s as anything but low end on the price range . You haven't experienced the full Milwaukee if you haven't done the fish fry, bloody marys and corned beef at McBob's. IMHO.
